The world of retail is changing, and Salsify is leading the charge alongside the world's best brands. Delivering great product experiences is the only way to succeed on the digital shelf and product content is at the heart of each of those experiences. Here at Salsify, we are committed to helping brands navigate the ever changing landscape of digital commerce and providing the tools needed to win on the digital shelf. We are incredibly proud of our track record in satisfying our customers and are profoundly excited about the road ahead for us as we continue to expand our capabilities.

We are searching for an experienced front end engineer to lead client side development on the Salsify commerce team.

Were looking for entrepreneurial candidates who are excited about working with customers to understand the needs of this new product, and are equally excited to build interfaces that are both rock-solid and delightful to use. We deeply value our engineering culture. We emphasize trust, mentorship and collaboration. We care about building the right thing, the right way, and having fun while we do it.

Rovaira Dasig
Product Management

Let's be honest. A lot of tech companies will jostle to be the most "this" or "that," when in reality, they appear to be quite similar. At Salsify, I get to be me - no pretense, no excuses, no hiding - and that's what I love most about working here. One of Salsify's core values is to be a company where everyone is empowered to build the company at which they want to work. And despite being here for only 6 weeks, I'm already making an impact on the work we do, the company we're building and the future we're hustling toward. They have literally built a development program for the new team that I joined, which will fast track my technical and professional skill set in ways that just doesn't really exist at most other startups. This level of investment and commitment Salsify has for its team is what draws people to our company.

 

Dave Simel
Product Manager

I'm the kind of person that puts personal growth at the top of the list when it comes to finding a company to work for. From the moment I started at Salsify, I can honestly say that the leadership has had my best interest in mind. I have been to industry conferences, developed more technical skills, participated in department trainings and have been promoted since I started a little over 1 year ago. The culture is fun and positive and I legitimately love coming into work everyday to work with friends and for great leaders. 

Joana Laranjeira
Customer Support Engineer

What can I say about Salsify other than... Thank you! These past months have been an amazing journey of professional and personal growth. This is a place where they celebrate you as a colleague, where working as a team really means working as a team!
Salsify's company culture is incredible and management actually cares about employees as human beings. You can literally walk up to anyone, even the founders, and have a conversation about anything. So glad I joined!

Stephannie Vargas
Project Manager

Why Salsify? What makes it different from other companies? 3 things. The culture, the people, and the new challenges. These are the three key factors that keep me excited and make me want to come in the office everyday. Being a part of Salsify for almost two years, I have had the honor of seeing Salsify grow from a small start-up to a larger employee community. My day to day consists of exposure to unique and challenging projects that I tackle with the help from peers, with such a wide range of experiences and backgrounds. As a recent grad, I never imagined my first job would incorporate such a rich culture that would not only give me the ability to do impactful work, but would allow me to do so at an early stage in my career. Sharing my passion for this company is an easy task, it almost seems silly to have to explain the logic for what I consider a perfect match and the best decision I ever made.

I love working at Salsify for two reasons: It's rare to find a company so at the forefront of digital thought leadership and an employee culture that fosters confidence, trust, and high performance from peers and managers!
